The Emergency Department staff will document that the consumer meets the eligibility criteria (described below) and does not have a current medical condition which precludes their eligibility for DHS/DMH-funded services by completion of the psychiatric medical clearance checklist. The ED then calls the Will County Health Department EDA Program to request a face-to-face evaluation of the consumer’s eligibility for the R1SCCS services. Upon arrival of the evaluator at the ED, the ED staff will provide the evaluator with their completed psychiatric medical clearance checklist for the consumer. The EDA is completed with the consumer face-to-face by a Qualified Mental Health Professional to determine all eligibility criteria are met and an appropriate level of service such as: Acute Community Services, Mental Health Crisis Residential Services, Division of Alcohol and Substance Abuse (DASA) Residential Crisis Stabilization Services, Community Hospital Inpatient Psychiatric Services (CHIPS), or State-Operated Psychiatric Hospitalization. Once the evaluator has completed the evaluation and is prepared with a recommendation for the appropriate level of service for the consumer, the Illinois Mental Health Collaborative must be contacted to obtain authorization.
